Alterf Skendiv and I are delighted to duel with you this round! I wasn't expecting the 5 day deadline, so I mustn't dilly-dally! I must admit, your building skills are daunting!
Adieu, and good luck!
- :) Jack & Alterf :)

ZeeAye just sat there... he wondered how serious Alterf & Jack were when they said "duel"? His hand was already on his blaster under the table, just like he had taught that Solo fellow. Zippity meant business, always did, but what was their angle... suddleny bill came back from the bar...with 4 cups of whatever the guy gives you when you pull his tunic and say "i'll have one of those" ZA relaxed just a bit, they were friendly competition, just a couple guys from the flickr rim ready to do the job. "Thanks J & A, I'm looking forward to it too!" Bill passed out the drinks and asked how Jack & Alterf have been doing, "you old pirates...."

Good luck the both of you! A shame that some of my favorite guys in this contest are coming against each other so early.
Thought you'd like this about the Vatican cameos.

Zippity Aviary's D-Wing Starfighter (ZeeAye Shipyards DWYCK-92 Scout/Patrol Fighter)

Here's where you put the story when you write it... getting tight on time lemme post this then write my nonsense and edit this! thought Zippity...

The message was garbled but ZeeAye knew what he had to do. First things first he would collect the necessary supplies and pay a visit to his favorite spice den, hopefully Tahsoka Ano was there, he kind of had a thing for her. Years ago Zippity had a contract that required a special ship. Dr. Aviary built the DWYCK with misdirection in mind... at first glance it seemed to have just two small blasters in the nose, about right for anyone who might have business in the Outer Rim. But Zippity wasn't just anyone...

The ship was powered by a new modification of the standard Girodyne sublight engines he'd ordered for so many of his commissioned ships, but he had a new wrinkle on the old workhorse. By redirecting the powerflow as only Doc Zip could he was able to double the power while maintaining his full cruising range and actually increased maneuverability. This was standard fare for Z.A., the real stroke of genius proved to be a completely new type of hyperdrive that could get point SIX past light speed! Of course Zippity didn't advertise that. He painted it brightly to affect the look of a cruising yacht and disguised the real weapons load... Docking port stabilizers? who needs em! Zippity disguised a pair of rapid fire laser canons where similar craft might have had docking clamps... he wasn't making friends or inspecting ships... he was there for The Job and to get out. He didn't think anyone would like what they got if they got in his way. A full salvo of Zippity Industries top of the line homing missles with multipurpose programmable warheads would easily take out a SUPER Star Destroyer.

Even though it was just made for a contract it soon became one of Zippity's favorite ship, almost as synonymous with his arrival as sabotage, meyhem and destruction.

Poor Alterf Skendif probably knew that the Gang Starr Guild wanted him out of business... he thought he could afford to deal with their annoyance, he was doing well... he couldn't know he was just a mark to the one man you couldn't afford to have coming for you. Zippity could feel the credits in his pouch already as he made his way through hyperspace Nice & Smooth

Thanks to Jack/Alterf/Automaton for the awesome competition and kind words this round!

All right, here's my entry:

Kuat Drive Yards' QX-14 D-Wing Starfighter was a fast combat vessel during the reign of the Empire. It's most notable feature was the curved "wing" along the back, which could swivel about, allowing for extreme maneuverability and speed. While the famous Imperial spy Alterf Skendiv< preferred his stealthy I-Wing Starfighter, from time time he'd board a D-Wing due the superior speed capabilities.

Don, can this be both my letter image & my polling image? If not, you can use the other view for polling, I'd just prefer this one!

Jack/AP/Alterf that thing is amazing! I'm pretty sure you're fine with the letter/polling being the same... can post 3 pics, must have at least one that satisfies each requirement (letter/pilot in cockpit) and the polling image is up to you... Love that Ten Numb face! Glad you made it, i was worried I wouldn't have anyone to blast into space particles ;-D

May the best ship win! Good luck Alterf Skendiv!

Okay, thanks! I've been frantically takings pictures/editing over the past hour, thought I might not make it! I'm in awe of your ship, it's just brilliant!
Good luck, and may the best D-Wing win!
